'Bring people to Jesus'

Serafina Silaitoga
Wednesday, July 09, 2014

RETIRED Anglican priest Father Charlie Leeman has challenged members of the church to continue evangelising and win more souls for Jesus.

Being a priest for 30 years, Fr Leeman believes more people today searched and hungered for the Word of God.

At his farewell, he reminded members of the Labasa parish to continue trusting in God.

"There are more people out there who are hungry for God's Word and I am pleading with you all to continue to evangelise and bring these people to Jesus," he said.

"I have worked my time in the church and telling people about Jesus was a duty I always carried out whenever I visited villages and parishes.

"Even though I may not be celebrating mass anymore, it will not stop me from doing this so I will ask you all to continue spreading the Word of God."

Fr Leeman urged the congregation to reach out to those in rural and isolated areas.

"They need to know Jesus and we, who know Him, need to play our part and preach the gospel."

Fr Leeman has been a priest for 30 years. He worked in the coastal areas of Naduri in Macuata serving in the different estates and villages.
